Local and Global Climate Action on the Path to Paris

Local and Global Climate Action on the Path to Paris

Join the Christian Science Monitor and the World Resource Institute for a discussion of local and global energy and climate action with Austin Blackmon, Boston's chief environment and energy official and other experts on Monday, Sept. 14 at the Hall of Ideas in Boston.

Diplomats from nearly 200 countries meet in Paris this December to forge a global climate agreement. Much progress has been made toward reducing the emissions responsible for climate change, but the path toward a low-carbon world is a difficult one. How are leaders and thinkers across the globe – from Boston to Beijing – confronting the decarbonization challenge? Where do we stand less than three months from a climate summit that will define global energy for decades to come?


In addition to Chief Blackmon, we'll hear perspectives from Kelly Levin, a senior associate at the World Resources Institute; Valerie Karplus, assistant professor of global economics and management at the MIT Sloan School of Management; and Mindy Lubber, president of Ceres.
